Anti-terror checks are now a thing in Beijing subway stations, and so are massive crowds

When the train is full and the bus is packed and you’re already running late, it’s usually a good excuse to pull a sickie from work (in my case, anyway). So have a thought for commuters in Beijing who are now subjected to anti-terror checks on the subway. Anti-terror checks are great – they keep us safe. But Beijing sees around 10 million subway rides a day throughout 200 stations. This means a looong wait to get onto the train. These images show just what rush hour was like at Beijing’s Tiantongyuan North Station. Might be a good time to find work within walking distance, folks!
